exactly why we need unions

September 15, 2006

the boston globe is reporting that the transportation authority is going to save a little money this year… by taking it out of the pocket of non-union employees.

one way of saving money?

Ending a policy that gave employees one floating holiday a year, a savings of $16,000.

i mean, talk about cheap.

considering that his predecessor made $223,000 a year, it seems he could chip in a little bit of savings in order that these workers could at least keep his holiday.

and yes, this is the transit authority overseeing the $15 billion dollar Big Dig project.

that, yes, is still plagued with problems.
